BioShock Infinite‘s Columbia seems like a complex world, and fans of the series are clamoring for more information. Lucky for us, Irrational Games wants to feed that need, and has announced an e-book prequel called BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt, available on February 12.
The book, written by Joe Fielder (writer at Irrational Games) and Ken Levine (creative director) will be $2.99, unless you pre-ordered the game from Amazon, in which case you get it for free.
Fielder said, “Since we first announced BioShock Infinite, our fans have asked for more information about Columbia and the complex cast of characters that inhabit the floating city… After reading the e-book, players will have a better understanding of BioShock Infinite’s world, the struggle between its factions, and the motivations of key characters, like rebel leader Daisy Fitzroy, without spoiling the mysteries of BioShock Infinite.”
Hopefully since it’s done in-house, BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt will be better than that terrible book, BioShock: Rapture. They would have to really, really try.
